March 2023
Dear Rotary members and friends,
The Rotary theme for March is Water and Sanitation/Hygiene (WaSH).  Though one of RI's seven areas of focus, it directly impacts all other areas.  Lack of adequate water and sanitation / hygiene is a disastrous problem across the globe and a growing issue in North America.  An article published by the USDA-EPA -  Partnership to Provide Wastewater Sanitation to Underserved Communities states;
“The America that we all believe in is a land of opportunity. But, for historically marginalized communities from Alabama to Alaska, that opportunity is stolen when basic sanitation doesn’t work—exposing adults and children to backyard sewage and disease.”
The March, 2022 Rotary magazine had an excellent article on failing sanitation infrastructure in rural America and the role this is having in perpetuating health and socioeconomic disparities.  Highlighting the work of MacArthur “genius grant” recipient, Catherine Coleman Flowers, the article offers important insights into what is not working and shares some of the things Rotarians CAN DO to take action!  One such action is as much about building positive peace as it is improving infrastructure. 
This year Rotaract week is March 13th – 19th
First, a “shout out” to the Rotaractors across the district.  Rotaract was officially inaugurated in 1968 with World Rotaract Week, observed annually the week of 13 March. There are 10,698 Rotaract clubs made up of 203,298 members in 180 countries worldwide.
Give a shout out to the Baldwin Wallace Rotaract Service Club – you can follow them and their great projects on Instagram - bwurotaract or on Facebook
Rotary and Rotaract should plan to:
  • Celebrate with Service
    Rotaract clubs are all about developing young leaders through service. Coordinate joint projects with local Rotary and Rotaract clubs to fundraise for The Rotary Foundation, raise awareness around a local cause, or organize a service project.
  • Foster Friendship and Fun
Rotaractors are experts at creating friendships and having fun. They partner with local Rotary clubs to organize a networking night or resume-writing workshop to bring Rotaractors and Rotarians together to learn from each other. This a great opportunity to share the amazing work clubs are doing with your community and invite potential members to learn more about Rotaract.
Thank you for all the amazing work you are doing through fellowship and service to your community and the world! 
As we enter the month of March we look forward to the new beginnings that Spring brings. Walking in the parks, trees budding, flowers beginning to emerge and clubs continuing to renew and grow. Spring revitalizes our spirit and passion. We, as Rotarians and clubs of District 6630, begin planning for outdoor events, service projects, fundraising and preparing for the changeover of our club and district leadership. 
This month, March 10th and 11th, the Club Presidents Elect will be traveling to Columbus for the State of Ohio’s All Ohio P.E.T.S.
All-Ohio Presidents-Elect Training Seminar is a multi-district P.E.T.S. training sessions of the five Rotary Districts in Ohio. It serves all of the Rotary Clubs in Ohio — more than 250 clubs.
During the weekend you and your spouse/partner will meet fellow Presidents-Elect to create new and lasting friendships, and of course learn about the operations of a successful Rotary Club.
You will hear presentations by Rotary leaders including Gordon McInally, President Elect Rotary International, and participate in discussions led by the workshop facilitators, all of whom were outstanding club presidents.  Your District Governor-Elect, aided by your assistant governors, will conduct special district meetings.

I would like to invite all of our 1600+ members to the District Conference of Clubs on April 28th and 29th.
We will be Celebrating our Community Service and Partners. 
The Conference will be held at the Cleveland Marriott East, 26300 Harvard Road, Warrensville Heights, Ohio, 44122

Geauga West Rotary recently had it's 32nd annual "Hearts for Service" fundraiser at the EOUV Austrian Club.  The event included appetizers, family style dinner, open bar, desserts, main raffle, silent auction, Chinese auction, sideboards,  and dancing.  This year's primary recipient was Next Step Geauga, who  is a nonprofit community-based case management and stabilization program for young adults.   In addition to the many programs GW does throughout the year , they were able to provide Next Step with a much needed Buick Envision made possible thru the generous  sponsorship of GMC/Junction Auto , along with UH Hospitals and the loyal support of the West Geauga community in general.
Pictured above are GW Rotarians John Zachariah, Terry Palermo, Fred Nevar, and Bob Voss along with Next Step Geauga director Andrea Pollock in the driver's seat.
